That is a pretty much dead-on assessment. My only critique would be that you were not harsh enough. Don't worry, I am here to elaborate.
I am 1,000% not surprised that they are not paying Trent Williams. When I first learned a few days ago that that was an option my first thought was, "Oh yeah, they're definitely doing that."
You see, the Redskins Upper Management (i.e. Dan Snyder and his bobble-headed hand puppet Bruce Allen) are notorious for being petty, vindictive and spiteful. They don't just fire Scot McCloughan they throw him under the bus by accusing him of being an alcoholic. When Kirk Cousins had the audacity to want a more lucrative contract they franchise tagged him for two years in a row, constantly disparaged his ability and Bruce "Rasputin" Allen called him "Kurt" at least six times in an interview where he was totally trashing the guy.
Brian Lafemina was hired to rehabilitate the Redskins image, improve fan participation and upgrade the organization. He was doing those things until he was fired less than a year into his tenure because of the unforgivable excuse of telling Danny Boy and Bruce "The Prince of Darkness" Allen that - for some reason - season ticket holders were upset that those idiots signed Reuben Foster as he was stepping out of the Hillsborough County Jail after his THIRD arrest in twelve months and his SECOND arrest on charges of beating up a woman.
Apparently that was the final straw for the brain trust that is Redskins Upper Management. How dare you, Brian Lafemnina! How dare you, Sir!
You should know better than to tell truth to power. If Dan "The Naked Emperor" Snyder is walking around without clothes then you should know better than to tell him. Just look at Bruce "A-Hole" Allen over there grinning like a jack-ass and telling you how well his robes fit.
Another example of speaking truth to power getting you fired was what happened to D.J. Swearinger after he criticized the coaches last year. Not a single word he said was untrue but he was gone in an instant despite being perhaps the best player on defense at the time.
Then there's this from last year: Redskins least trusted and worst prepared Front Office
USA Today conducted a poll of 25 NFL player agents and they came to the overwhelming conclusion that the Washington Redskins in general and Bruce "Fork Tongue" Allen in particular are the least trusted and worst prepared organization in the league when it comes to negotiations.
Q: How can you tell if Bruce Allen is lying?
A: His lips are moving
The Redskins may not be the worst team on the football field this year
That remains to be seen. True, they did technically beat the Dolphins but that was only because the Miami coaches chose to lose the game. If they had kicked the extra point they would have won in overtime. If they had called a better play on the 2 point conversion they would have won. A Washington loss to the Jets would solidify Worst Team credentials. Too bad we don't play the Bengals...
between their play and Dan Snyder doing Dan Snyder things, they're certainly the worst franchise in the NFL this year.
This year? How about the worst franchise of the last two decades. And counting.
Listen, I'm stuck. I'm 50 years old and was literally born a Redskins fan. There are pictures of me wearing a Skins outfit when I was 6 months old. I have sat through some miserable seasons but this is absolutely the worst I have had to endure. Seems like there is no hope for the future as long as the current ownership exists. I will be shocked if they win more than one more game this year and not at all surprised if they finish 1-15.
I genuinely feel bad for the players. If you are drafted or traded to Washington then kiss your career goodbye. If you are a free agent and you go there willingly then that's on you. Either way, I don't blame them for the cesspool that has been created by Douchebag Snyder and Bruised Anus Allen.
I can only hope that the team changes hands or moves. There are plenty of cities out there that need a team - St. Louis, San Diego, Boise. Move the damn team, call it something else and let us get an expansion franchise in here. Dang.
Rant over, I guess.
